When buying paint you need to use the manufacturers paint code rather than the colour name. This is because most manufacturers (MGR included) use several different variations of some colour. For example MGR use 4-5 different versions of BRG, so if you just ask for BRG you wouldn’t necessarily get the right colour.
The 3 digit paint code is found on the VIN plate, IIRC this is on the door shut on the passenger side on a R25.

my car is that shade of red, in car shops and halfords etc... the paint is called rover flame red 89 hope this is some help!
be careful though as the later 200's came in solar red. which is very similar to look at but very different if u use the wrong one.

flame red 89 is code COF........not sure what solar red is though.

also the 25/ZR was never available in flame red only solar red.
